Ways of Learning
Primary Years - Google Classroom and/or Seesaw for Communication
Communication about learning content would occur through the class’ existing Google Classroom page or Seesaw.
Video resources, links, activities and much more can be pushed to students via these online platforms. Seesaw and Google Classrooms also allow for communication of work set from our extensive list of School paid online registrations (listed per stage through this document), or shared documents as learning tasks. These provide a range of learning opportunities for students and the ability to comment/reply to posts in order to develop a deeper understanding and to clarify set work.
Seesaw will be the main communication platform for younger levels in Primary (P-3) and used in conjunction with Google Classroom in Upper Primary (Yr 4-6).
For the first two weeks of Term 2, students will have access via Seesaw or Google CLassroom to an activity matrix for each of these specialist lessons: Music, Physical Education and Ethics & Faith. During the timetabled lesson for these subjects, children are to select two activities to complete.
Assembly will be available at 2:00pm - 2:30pm each Monday via Zoom.
Worship will also be shared each Thursday at 2:00pm - 2:30pm. These will both be pre-recorded at this stage.
